“Aggretsuko” will premiere on Netflix worldwide in spring 2018.
Co-produced by Sanrio, TBS and Fanworks, the new series, titled “Aggretsuko,” will follow 25-year-old office associate Retsuko as shemaneuvers company politics, befriends co-workers, vents through death metal karaoke and attempts to maintain a healthy work/life balance.
"‘Aggretsuko’ may be a uniquely Japanese show, but the frustration it taps into–not to mention the joy of venting–is universal," says Rob Roy, vice president, content acquisition, Netflix. "We're excited to partner with Sanrio in bringing it to a global audience."
Sanrio’s Aggretsuko character was initially introduced to the world through a series of short sketches on Tokyo Broadcasting System in late 2016.
“Aggretsuko” will launch globally on Netflix in spring 2018.
